It is time to go old school with our next slot, with a retro theme, layout and even sound effects it is sure to add a touch of nostalgia to your game play. Hailing from the depths of the Blueprint Gaming sea of slots is non other than Fishin Frenzy! A sea fishing game that is sure to delight with its over the top old fashioned design and interesting feature! Have your bait box at the ready as we are hoping to land some big fish with this one!
Fishin Frenzy is a 5-reel, 10 fixed pay line slot that offers fishers a tasty RTP of 96.12% to tackle! Looking almost as if the reels have been submerged underwater, they spin transparently against an ocean backdrop. The only sounds coming from the game are when the reels spin and it sounds almost funfair like, which is reminiscent of retro aged slots.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 40p per spin and can be increased to the maximum of just £8 per spin in Fishin Frenzy. Making this top of the low cost slots for players and possibly one of the reasons it is so popular; especially when you factor in that 96.12% RTP as well! You will see the bet amount in the large circle to the left of the reels with arrows above and below. This is where you will amend the bet from the highest to the lowest and there are plenty of variations between the two to suit all pockets!
Wild Symbol – As you would expect in a game based around fishing, the wild symbol is of course a fisherman with his catch! He will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and he is also the highest paid symbol in Fishin Frenzy. Land five of the fisherman wild symbol on a winning pay line to catch yourself the deal of the day, which is a whopping x5000 coin win!
Scatter Symbol – In keeping with the fishing theme is Fishin Frenzy’s scatter symbol which is a fishing boat. Land three or more of the boat scatter symbol anywhere on the reels to trigger the bonus spins round.
Other Symbols – Each of the symbols in Fishin Frenzy have a fishing theme, even the standard card symbols too. Higher value symbols include a seagull, fishing reel, life ring, tackle box and some very animated blue fish that swim about when part of a win. Lower symbols are represented by the A, K, Q, J and 10, but each one has been given a fishy twist to its design. If you look closely you will see fins and tails forming part of the shape.
Bonus Spins Feature – Fishin Frenzy has just one single feature, don’t let that put you off though because it is a good one. Once you have landed the three or more scatter symbols needed to trigger it, you will be allocated a number of spins.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 10 bonus spins,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 15 bonus spins,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 20 bonus spins.
There is a twist though, your fisherman wild is now activated into an animated wild in this round. What that means is when he lands on the reels at the same time as the blue fish symbols, he will throw his reel out and catch all the fish. Each fish has a separate cash sum on its symbol, smaller fish mean smaller cash sums, bigger fish have bigger cash sums. Luckily for you if multiple fish land they will all be caught by the fisherman and added to your win!
It may well be one of the more basic game play slots we have looked at in some time, but Fishin Frenzy packs a mighty bang. Not only is the highest stake amount only going to set you back by £8 per spin, but it offers a great RTP and a feature that just keeps on giving. We can forgive the single feature and dodgy graphics for that reason alone. Wins happen often in the main game too, with those blue fish bobbing along nicely when they form part of a win. We weren’t expecting to love this game at first glance, but it has certainly won us over and we will definitely be back for more of Fishin Frenzy in the future.
